Overview

Almost a Princess by Elizabeth Thornton

From nationally bestselling author Elizabeth Thornton comes a sensuous new tale of true love and fiery romance—under the most intriguing of circumstances.

Case Devere, the steely-eyed earl of Castleton, has agreed to help Special Branch track down a notorious killer—one who just happens to be his archenemy. But he finds more than he bargained for when his search leads him to Jane Mayberry, a beautiful bluestocking passionately devoted to the cause of women’s rights—and to protecting her privacy. As irresistible as she is uncooperative, the spirited Jane arouses Case’s interest—as well as his worst suspicions—when she quietly disappears. Determined to find the one woman who may hold the key to his investigation—and to his heart—Case goes after her.

Though their sparring belies an attraction too powerful to deny, Jane knows there can never be anything between herself and the strong-willed earl. For she bears a dark and terrifying secret that must remain hidden—even at the cost of a broken heart. As Case fights for the love of the one woman who has ever mattered to him, they are swept into a deadly game by a killer who won’t stop until he has punished them both.

I loved this book. And, one of the most lovable characters is a dog--literally. Lots of real human emotion in this one, well-written, with plenty of suspense and slow-burning romance. Highly recommended!

AFTER READING 4 OTHER THORNTON BOOKS AND NONE REALLY WORTH THE READ--THIS IS ONE I CAN RECOMMEND. THE ONLY DRAWBACK TO GETTING 5 STARS WAS-ON A SENSUAL SCALE OF 1-10 THIS WAS A 2 AND THAT WAS BEING CHARITABLE. CASE WAS NOT OVERBEARING AS SOME HEROS ARE. JANE IS NOT A SIMPERING IDIOT-NOR A IRON-CORESTED FEMALE. THERE WAS MORE THAN ONE SURPRISE-AND ALTHOUGH THE DETAILS OF THE MYSTERIES WAS REVEALED TOO SOON THIS IS STILL A GOOD BOOK.

After reading the perfect princess I was looking forward to the story of Case. Beatiful book with a captivating story. I like romancces that have some suspence in them and this is one of them. The end though is unbelievably rushed . It leaves you with a taste of unfullfilment in the mistery depatrment.

In 1816 England, Special Branch enlists the help of Lord Caspar ¿Case¿ Devere to capture a clever killer. The clues lead Case to the Ladies¿ Library women¿s rights group whose objectives is to change the marriage and property laws. Case asks member Jane Mayberry to take him to see her friend Letitia Gray better known among this circle as Letty Piers. Jane is as uncooperative as she is intelligent, which means Case has quite an obstacle to overcome. Case persuades Jane to help him. Working together, they begin to fall in love. However, she harbors a secret that she knows will destroy their relationship even as he realizes the murderer is someone he loathes from the war in the Peninsular. ALMOST A PRINCESS is as much a historical mystery as it is a Regency romance. The investigation is cleverly designed so that the audience follows Case and his sidekick as they begin to solve the homicides until the plot twists into a cat and mouse game with the lead male protagonist as the rodent and his beloved partner as the cheese. The romance is a delight also especially as the women¿s movement appears to be an intriguing obstacle. Perhaps the only default is Elizabeth Thornton¿s penchant to use princess in her titles when this novel is obviously higher ranked. Harriet Klausner
